Computer fine but I'm still not happy!

My laptop is working perfectly!!!!!!!

It's a Toshiba on Windows 7, and is about 8 months old.

However, for the last few weeks I repeatedly get a notification from my Firewall (Online Armor) that "Google Update" is trying to update my registry.

Even though this notification keeps appearing every time I click "BLOCK" and "Remember this decision", but is still keeps popping up intermittently.
I have NEVER clicked "ALLOW"!! I assume clicking "ALLOW" would not be a good idea!!

How can I stop this malicious program from even attempting to penetrate my system?
Or do I already have the virus?

So far I've run a MalwareByte scan and it found nothing.

Any suggestions?

Hi and welcome to GeeksToGo! My nick name is Render and I will be assisting you with your Malware/Security problems. Please make sure you read all of the instructions and fixes thoroughly before continuing with them. If you have any queries or you are unsure about anything, just say and I'll help you out :)

You being signed on as Render is a forum issue that is being addressed. I'm sorry for the confusion.

I think that your computer is not infected and that is normal firewall behaviour. But let's see:

Posted Image OTL Custom Scan

  • Download OTL to your desktop.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon to run it.
  • Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top, make sure Stadard output is selected.
  • Select Scan all users
  • Under the Extra Registry section, check Use SafeList
  • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box copy and paste this in:

    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    hklm\software\clients\startmenuinternet|command /rs
    hklm\software\clients\startmenuinternet|command /64 /rs
  • Click the Posted Image button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time and post them in your topic
